Do any of you have any suggestions as to the best way to handle a puppy that likes to bite and tug on her leash? Molly is 15 weeks old. I am trying to teach her how to walk properly on leash but the biting is getting in the way. I have tried both a regular collar and leash as well as a harness (that can attach in front or in back). I am also supposed to have her on leash for some of our puppy class homework, such as learning to sit and stay as well as the come command. Obviously her infatuation with the leash has gotten in the way of that too. I have tried the bitter apple spray but she doesn't seem to mind the taste! Ignoring her doesn't seem to work either. Thanks for any help you might offer.
